Why visiting the beach during winter is a great idea

The beach pavilions at CaanZEE (= Castricum aan ZEE) are open all year round, which is quite unique and rare in the Netherlands. On the beaches of Bloemendaal and Zandvoort aan Zee, for example, only one or two pavilions are open all seasons. This means that CaanZEE (and with it PaanZEE) not only attracts visitors with sunny weather but also people who make dune walks in autumn and winter, play sports, go running with their dogs, eat stew or drink hot chocolate when it's grey and rainy. After all, the beach is always a good idea! Next time when it storms or rains realize that the beach can always give you a nice afternoon. PaanZEE is always open at all times so that's no excuse for staying home... For all low season beach lovers there's the 'Dogs & Horses' subscription. A winter season ticket with which you can park unlimited at PaanZEE between October 1st and April 30th. Would you like to order this subscription halfway through winter? No problem! After the summer, starting October 1st, you can again use the remaining days from your Dogs & Horses subscription. Oh and of course you can use this subscription also without a four-legged friend. You can order the Dogs & Horses winter subscription via: https://www.paanzee.nl/product...


Parking at Castricum at Sea

A sustainable world begins with you

Where to start?

The fact that we at PaanZEE have a sustainable mission is probably not entirely in line with your idea of parking. The fact is that cars are super handy! That's why we find it important - in addition to offering you a happy parking experience - to show you that sustainability is of paramount importance to us as well. Fortunately, there is the advance of the electric car: which is both in the production process as wel ass usage much more environmentally friendly. Good to know is that these positive characteristics are mainly attributed to the 100% zero emission cars. That's why only 100% emission-free cars receive a reduction on their (annual) subscription at PaanZEE. Aren't you driving an electric yet but do want to contribute to a greener environment? You can already easily do that with small daily purchases. Every year the unimaginable number of 250 billion kilos of plastic is produced worldwide. About half of them are discarded after using them once. We also notice this on PaanZEE. Litter is not just a problem for the parking lot: plastics and paper also blows into the dunes and then into the sea. If we all switch to reusable variants, the litter would decrease drastically. Think of Dopper bottles, fabrics instead of plastic bags and reusable coffee cups. Too attached to your plastic belongings? Make sure you take everything back with you when you leave PaanZEE. Makes everyone happy! De Volkskrant wrote an interesting article about the sustainability of (yes really) your bag. Read that here.


The charging-pole-sticker phenomenon

what is it and what's it doing?

PaanZEE is a parking lot with a green ambition. We are aware of the vulnerable area we are in. For example, we do our best to remove waste on the parking lot to prevent it from ending up in the dunes or the sea. Soon there will also be special, animal-friendly, lighting installed. In addition, we currently have 4 charging stations for electric cars on the site, in the near future that will be 8 (later on there will be even more!). Here you can charge your car for free. Then your car, like you, can go home energized after your visit. Win win! With the arrival of the charging stations, however, we have been confronted with a new type of guest: the charging-pole-sticker. Never heard of it? Meaning 'charging pole sticker'charging pole sticker (the; v (m); plural: charging pole stickers; diminutive:charging pole sticky [in case of a small car] The charging-post-sticker is so fond of the charging station that it remains on for longer than the required charging time (an hour or two). We're very happy to have you, really. But there are more cars wanting to go home charged, you want that for them too right? That's why we ask all chargers to make the world a bit nicer, starting with themselves. Costs nothing, delivers you a big smile. What you have to do for that? Easy: move your car. Happy parking for everyone! * Charging-pole-stickers can be described as cars (or car owners) that are, as it were, glued to a charging station. The word has been formed in a similar way to a banknote (someone who is not enterprising, but spends all his time sitting or hanging on the couch) and nests (a young adult who continues to live up to his parents), but also reminds him of plush slap (politician who is addicted to power).
